* PutOnABus: The 2016 edition replaces her as a player/suspect with Dr. Orchid. She's still mentioned in the backstory as working at Mr. Black's mansion though, and added being Orchid's nanny to her list of duties.


Added DiffLines:

!!Dr. Orchid
The newest addition to the lineup, replacing Mrs. White in the 2016 edition. Dr. Orchid is Mr. Black's adopted daughter, an expert on rare plants and their... 'medicinal' properties.
* AsianAndNerdy: She's got a Phd in herbology
* TokenMinority: Most of the press reaction to her announcement boiled down to this, although she's not actually the first Asian character in the franchise- Ms Scarlet has occasionally been Asian in the past, and the occasionally-appearing-in-the-spinoffs Lady Lavender is from the same part of the world.
